Rate And Characteristics Of Dental Transposition
The aim of this study is to review the frequency and the characteristics of the dental transpositions and to assess the associated dental disorders in treated patients with orthodontic deformations. 1457 adolescent patients were diagnosed with orthodontic problems. They were treated in our clinic and they were included in the study below. 14 of them have a true type of tooth transposition. This by itself presents 0.96% frequency of this abnormality. These 14 patients have 17 transposing teeth in general. The ratio of females/males is 71.4% to 28.6%. The problem manifests basically in the maxilla. It was present in 11 of the patients (78.6%) – 8 with unilateral and 3 with bilateral manifested type. Three of the patients (21.4%) had exchanged positions of the teeth in the mandibulla. Early diagnosis and knowledge of the frequency and etiology of the problem influence the prognosis and success of orthodontic treatment of the patients.
